Space chess

It is well known that the I.S.S is no mansion. Often crammed in close quarters , astronauts may lead a stressful daily life. To solve all the psychological and stress issues astronauts face , I have developed a simple, yet effective tool. This space chess is only a small part of what the board would look like. The individual tiles are designed to fit together with snap-fit and work in zero-g conditions. The example of a pawn (astronaut) also snap fits in to the board to not float away. Both of the pieces fit the guidelines printed individually, but when built together they can make a full chess board. This will help give a hobby to astronauts during their free time , mental sanity is important. Space may do bad things to the human mind.
